What causes missing teeth

Missing teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Trauma or injury to the mouth or jaw
  • Tooth decay or gum disease
  • Genetics or congenital conditions that affect tooth development
  • Age-related wear and tear
  • Poor dental hygiene and lack of regular dental checkups
  • Lifestyle factors like smoking

Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular visits to our office are important to prevent tooth loss and catch any problems early on. At MillBridge Dentistry, our compassionate and knowledgeable team is here to help you with effective treatments to restore your smile and improve your oral health.

Treatment options for missing teeth

At MillBridge Dentistry, we offer a variety of tooth restoration options to help you smile again.

Dental implants

Implants involve surgically placing a small titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as an artificial tooth root. Once the post has integrated with the bone, a crown or other restoration is attached to the implant to create a natural-looking and functional tooth replacement.

Bone Grafting

If you have missing teeth or severely decayed teeth, a dental bone graft may be necessary to provide a strong and stable foundation for dental implants. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that can help rebuild and restore the gum tissue around missing teeth.

Smile Makeovers

Smile makeover treatments are custom-tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. Based on your specific requirements and desired outcomes, your personalized treatment plan may involve single or multiple dental procedures to achieve your goals.

Dr. Anait and Dr. Armen can help determine which tooth replacement option is best for you based on factors such as the number of missing teeth, the condition of your remaining teeth and gums, and your overall dental health.

Preventing tooth loss for a lifetime

Embrace a twice-daily brushing routine

By brushing your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day—once in the morning and once before bed—you can remove plaque and bacteria that cause gum irritation and inflammation. Focus on those hard-to-reach areas to ensure a thorough clean.

Make flossing a daily habit

Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and just below the gum line, where your toothbrush can’t reach. Make flossing a daily habit to help prevent bleeding gums and other oral health issues.

Adopt a healthy lifestyle

Eating a nutritious diet, avoiding acidic or sugary foods and beverages, and steering clear of tobacco can help prevent bleeding gums and other oral health concerns. 

Schedule regular dental cleanings and exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential for preventing oral health issues. MillBridge Dentistry offers comprehensive dental care for patients of all ages and backgrounds. Don’t wait until it’s too late – schedule your appointment today and discover how we can help you achieve optimal oral health!
